Staff Reporter: Texas Republican Representative Ron Wright died Sunday, about two weeks after contracting COVID-19. The first sitting member of Congress to die of the virus, Wright had also been undergoing treatment for cancer for years, according to a statement released by his office.
“Congressman Ron Wright passed away peacefully at the age of 67 on February 7, 2021. His wife Susan was by his side and he is now in the presence of their Lord and Savior,” the statement said.
For the past two weeks, he and his wife, Susan Wright, were in Baylor Hospital in Dallas after both were diagnosed with COVID-19. On January 21, Wright released a statement announcing he had tested positive after he had come into contact a week earlier with someone who had the disease.
